“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”
William W. Purkey



I know I’ve heard these words spoken before in various ways. They really are true. For someone struggling with anxiety it is so hard to do.

I worry too much about what others think.

I worry too much about how others feel.

I need to focus on me and my finally and just dance like no one is watching.

What prompted this? I walked in to work yesterday with my lunch; with no one around and no one said anything to me I instantly felt shame. I felt shame for how I looked, how I felt. I felt shame that I still haven’t been able to shed the weight I need to in order to be healthy. I felt shame that I’m still struggling every day.

I need to make myself a poster with these words on it. I need to live my life, not just walk through it, and I need to dance like no one is watching…

This song has nothing to do with that (well not really), I just really like it…

Metallica – Whiskey in the Jar
